Reader comment on item: Permit Muslim-only Enclaves?
in response to reader comment: May we be spared

All this was predictable from the start. Muslims are required to stay as a cohesive community just as any invader needs to, to repel any opposing force. For hundreds of years, Western writers and thinkers have warned of the danger that Islam poses the West and Europe. But what did our politicians do? They ignored all that and quite literally invited millions of Muslims to settle in the West, many of them on Welfare. Present day writers on Islam are not very different except they still have to call for an immediate cessation of immigration of Muslims.

The reason to stay quiet, which could be understood a few years back, is now not operable. We are sleepwalking to a catastrophe - civil wars breaking out all over the West, a veritable bunch of Bosnias. What is required is for a prominent set of politicians, writers, and thinkers, to state with humility and compassion, that we, i.e., the West have made a colossal mistake, and before it is too late, to right that. That humanity and compassion for all, Muslims included, require that separation from Islam/Muslims be undertaken as a matter of urgency, or else we are looking at the demise of the West, or a civil war that makes Bosnia look like a garden party. It is sad to state, but nothing can save the West from separate civil wars breaking out all over, like an ugly rash.

There are no easy options left now except a parting of communities. This is the most humane solution we have at the moment, and even this option is time limited. In the end we face a gruesome civil war in the future (Kosovo, Bosnia, Thailand etc), which after countless dead, will lead to "ethnic" cleansing as the final outcome, as no settled community has ever handed over power to immigrants peacefully. I hope and pray that a "religious" civil war does not happen. It is too painful to contemplate.
